BUZZING WITH PURPOSE: Inspiring Young Minds To Protect Our Incredible Pollinators🐝

It’s time to take 20,000-50,000 of our sweet honeybees on our annual tour to second grade classes and educate children about the importance these amazing creatures. With the spring science curriculum focusing on lifecycles, this coordinates perfectly!

 

The experience is as much fun for us as it is for them. Through our educational observation hive, both students and teachers get a peek into the fascinating world of honeybees. From honey and beeswax production, to learning about the hexagonal structure of honeycomb and the benefits of honeybee propolis, students are in for a treat. They even learn how to do the waggle dance; a unique way worker bees communicate with each other.

 

During our visit, we showcase the various roles of worker bees, drones, and even offer a special glimpse of “baby” bees being born, they’ll meet the queen bee and may even see her lay eggs. We emphasize the importance of each bee in the hive and how they work together as a community to ensure the colony’s survival.

 

As part of our educational outreach, each student receives an informational worksheet and craft project related to honeybees, allowing them to continue their learning beyond the classroom. In addition, every student receives a honey stick filled with pure and delicious raw honey, connecting them to the sweet rewards of beekeeping.

 

Honeybees are essential to our ecosystem, pollinating plants and ensuring the growth of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. By educating young minds about the importance of honeybees, we aim to instill a sense of environmental responsibility and nurture a deeper admiration for nature.

 

This initiative reflects our dedication to giving back to our community and raising awareness about the vital role that honeybees play in our ecosystem. By inspiring young minds to care for and protect these incredible pollinators, we are sowing the seeds for a more sustainable future.
